Pioneer Times

Bill's Shed-Chalk Boards Our daughter came home from school yesterday thrilled about Pioneer Days, and the fact that her teacher was pretending to be a Pioneer Teacher as part of getting into the lessons.  Fortunately she was able to relate on a number of levels, between reading the Laura Ingles Wilder books, seeing Little House On The Prairie, and being able to walk through the shed on the farm where I grew up  – the shed that was once a one room school house, complete with slate boards.  Last week the old school came down, the decision was made to demo it instead of move it as a result of it’s condition.  It was nice to be able to take one final look, and shoot these pictures the night before the demo.
